Pakistan PM Imran Khan and US President Trump to hold meeting today

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan is set to hold talks with the US President Donald Trump today to reboot bilateral ties.

The ties between the two nations were hit after the US President publicly criticised Islamabad, cancelled military aid and asked it to do more to fight terrorism.

During the meet at the White House, the American leadership is likely to press Mr Khan to take “decisive and irreversible” actions against terrorists and militant groups operating from Pakistani soil and facilitate peace talks with the Taliban.

The relations between Pakistan and the US have remained tense during Trump’s tenure. The US President has publicly said that Pakistan has given us “nothing but lies and deceit” and also suspended security and other assistance for backing terror groups.

The cricketer-turned-politician arrived in Washington on Saturday afternoon.
